2018 Optional Supplemental Dental Benefit

The optional supplemental dental benefit can be added to your BlueSaver HMO, Senior Blue HMO, or Forever Blue PPO plan. Our dental coverage is an optional supplemental benefit, which means it's not covered by Original Medicare or included in the benefit package of your plan. You must continue to pay your Part B premium and your Medicare Advantage plan premium. 

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York offers two optional supplemental dental benefits to choose from: 

  • Basic
  • Enhanced

Either option gives you the freedom to choose your own dentist because there is no contracted dental provider network. With the basic plan, you pay $17 per month. With the enhanced plan, you pay $35 per month. Check out the details for each plan below.

What are the eligibility requirements?


You must live in one of the following Western New York counties to be eligible for enrollment in one of our Medicare Advantage plans: 

  • Allegany
